Cleveland Partnership for English Learner Success
AIR’s Regional Educational Laboratory Midwest leads the Cleveland Partnership for English Learner Success (CLE-PELS). This partnership aims to (1) increase the district’s capacity to access, conduct, interpret, and make sense of English Learner (EL) research and (2) support the use of EL research in decision making at the school and district levels. Specifically, partnership members will use research to understand and address the needs of a growing and increasingly more diverse EL student population in the district. To work toward this goal, the partnership developed a shared research agenda in a collaborative workshop. This agenda will guide current and future projects and will define the direction of the partnership.
